George R. Wallace Foundation Endowment Fund

    Ut Prosim

Established at Virginia Tech in 1997, the George R. Wallace Foundation Endowment is used to purchase books, manuscript items and collections, and other Civil War-related materials for Special Collections. Since its creation, Special Collections has acquired more than 200 books, pamphlets, speeches, military publications, diaries (published and manuscript), letters, regimental documents, ledgers, and electronic media though the help of the Wallace endowment. In addition to materials in the catalog, the George R. Wallace Foundation has also been used to purchase Civil War-era sheet music (located in the Sheet Music Collection, Ms2003-021), maps, and prints.

All books and cataloged materials are located in Special Collections Civil War Rare Books unless otherwise noted in Addison.
